I picked up the poncho again this weekend and zoomed thru the rest of the back. It is a really fun little stitch pattern. And I love the weight it has from the Berocco Cotton Twist. But even on big honkin 10mm needles it still splits occasionally!
Here’s a full shot. It’s hard to photograph well.
And a closeup. This is truer to color:
It’s very drapey so I ended up making the neck about 7 inches wide. I think it will stretch out. And if it doesn’t I’ll just leave off a couple extra inches when sewing up the front and back.
I’ve been getting alot of hits from google searching for Colinette Poncho. I suspect many of them are looking for the multi-yarn Colinette poncho that alot of people have been making this season. However, if you’re looking for the pattern I used I do plan to post it here when I’m done. I may make some changes to the neckline of the front so I’m not quite ready to post it yet. If you are interested in the pattern please leave me a comment and I can send out an email when it’s done.
In other poncho news, have you seen SequinK’s Ponchofication of Charlotte? It’s really cool. I would never wear a shawl but a Charlotte Poncho. Hmmm….only 5 hanks of Koigu, right?
